Description

Navigation restrictions apply during the construction of a new marina entrance at Bakers Lane in Knowle. This section of canal will become a controlled passage with a traffic light system in place. Please be prepared to wait for a few minutes and follow the light signals and instructions. Thank you for your co-operation and patience.

From Wednesday 13 May our canals and rivers are open for navigation. Our towpaths are also open for exercise or journeys to undertake essential work, but please try to avoid any stretches with boats moored against the towpath. Strictly observe social distancing at all times, following the latest advice from the government. Before you go by boat, bike or boot, remember to check your route.
